on the vote tally in arizona and senator scott brown is hinting at his political future. first as new members make their way to capitol hill, allen west continues to fight for his seat. west has now filed a complained in st. lucie county yesterday calling for a recount of all the early ballots in the race. west trails patrick murphy by 0.58% and according to state law an automatic recount is needed only when a difference in votes is 0.5% or less so not at that threshold. west told nbc, quote, i think that we need to have the electoral process play out as it should, and then wherever the results lie, that's fine with me. but i want to make sure we have honor and integrity in that process. meanwhile, on the hill yesterday democrats held a press conference to introduce incoming members of congress and the house minority leader nancy pelosi addressed murphy as congressman elect. the only nonsitting member to speak. >>> meanwhile, out in arizona there are 340,000 ballots that have yet to be counted in the senate race between richard carmona and jeff flake. carmona did concede on election night whe
, tammy baldwin will tell you this, brown will tell you, candidates who won races had to spend six, seven, eight hours on the phone, begging for money. this money and politics problem is a crisis. is a crisis the matter what the final result. you may be able to collier with a victory, but do not think it is not a real problem. the people understand that. in montana and colorado, they have referendums on whether those -- they should encourage a constitutional amendment to overturn citizens united. the results are very encouraging, not just in those states, the cities across the country people voted to overturn citizens united. there is an exciting result of montana as well. it looks like the new governor of montana, a democrat, a guy who was attorney general of montana, the person who went to the supreme court and fought to maintain montana's historic are on corporate money in politics. we have elected people who really do understand that we have got to overturn citizens united. i think is important to recognize in the new senate, bernie sanders but overturned -- it overturning citizens un
, please. >> i am wondering what impact you think a link-up moderate senators, such as brown, lugar, college are going to have on the negotiation? >> we have been waiting for some time, including actor for example senators snowe and lugar announced they were retiring, for change, and has not been there. they continued along the path in following the leadership of senator mcconnell. whether it changes now is an open question. i suspect it will a little bit, and it may well for senator brown, depending on when we get an announcement or if there is an announcement that john kerry going to be named secretary of state, in which case there will be a special election down the road for that senate seat, and you will see scott brown become the great conciliator as he prepares for the election. for others, they will continue to take their clothes from what the leaders say or what the members do. there the question is whether mcconnell basically becomes at least five things a more passive actor and lets lamar alexander and bob corker and tom coburn take the lead and doing something that he wil
. sherrod brown, and in ohio, almost more than 30% of his votes were from african- americans. bob casey, more than 20% of his votes in pennsylvania came from african-americans. the success the democrats had with their senate candidates this year dovetails very nicely with president obama's campaign in terms of turning out african- american voters. i the guy will stop there and entertain questions >> do we have any questions? >> [inaudible] what are your thoughts on some of the patterns you see in terms of that regional stuff? is there anything that jumps out at you? >> last year at this time, i was presenting a paper called resegregation in southern politics. i have not had the chance this morning to look at arkansas, at the state legislature. i know all members of the state members of the legislation and arkansas were up for election this year and all lot of money was put into the state to change the state legislature from being democratic to be republican. if it does in fact flip in this election, all 22 of the state legislatures in the south will now be republican majorities. >> we'r
environment makes it difficult for them to vote for scott brown and heather wilson. the problems -- the problem with the republicans -- they have some very ideologically driven voters, but part of the republican base is more open to voting for democrats than the democratic base is to vote for republicans, i believe. that even example. heidi is a terrific candidate in north dakota. mitt romney one north dakota by 21. and i was able to overcome that. it is true that she -- that the president one north dakota slightly less than -- at mitt romney 1 north dakota at slightly less than the president's won massachusetts. but the republican coalition includes kind of a soft swing voter that is inclined to vote republican, but as more willing to vote for democrats. john barrow in georgia, the republican candidate was horrendous. a challenger refused to debate the incumbent. [laughter] i didn't say it was a bad decision, i just said it says something about the challenger. i think this is an additional problem. it is easier for moderate, centrist democrats to feel the republican voters than
-- scott brown, tommy thompson, rick berg and tommy mcnamara. pick a direction. you want to be moderate and play around with this, you are not going to hold up. you want to go fiscally conservative, go tea party, and you might win the senate back. >> if i could answer a basic question without appalling answerrings. >> sean: but there is a big gender gap here. women in larger numbers voted for obam a. men in larger numbers voted for romney. >> so did minorities, a lot of latinos and african-americans and -- [overlapping dialogue] >> sean: to eric's point, 3 million fewer republicans voted this year than in 2008. >> real quick, the numbers, right now, as of this -- literally a couple of hours ago, 2,29800 is what obam beat romney by. almost 3 million fewer republicans voted. >> he didn't get that turnout. >> that electoral college, that's becoming an issue. there are a lot of constitutionalists who are going to yell at me for saying this. >> sean: no, no, no. you don't go with the popular vote. you don't. >> bad idea. >> romney lost by 24% and he lost the popular vote-- >>> if those 3 mil
elizabeth warren to replace incumbent scott brown for the seat formerly held by the late ted kennedy. in north dakota, heidi heitkamp beat rick berg. in held off a tough challenger from congressman denny rehberg. and claire mccaskill beat todd akin. >> let's let that one breathe for a second. >> why don't we. >> let me just say as probably the lone registered republican sitting not only at this table but in this zip code, thank you, todd akin. thank you for selfishly putting yourself above your party and the values that you claim to hold dear. you just gave up yet another senate seat for the republican party to harry reid. todd, thanks a lot, pal. the rest of the world knew you were going to lose, and you decided to do it anyway. >> right. and i'll add to that, if i could, to be completely annoying, i'm sure, but thank you, todd akin and richard mourdock and thank you republican party for not breaking their arms and getting rid of them and instead focusing on people like chris christie who were just doing his job. >> again, this is a problem. it's a branding problem. and john, you kn

will not go out into the lake and brown. [video clip] >> tonight is a tremendous benefit to republican women, tea party women. for all of you, this is your victory. let me say this. if president obama means what he says on the campaign trail, if he is interested in working order to bring the people together to reduce the deficit and get people working, i will work with him. but if he continues down the same path, then i will spend every waking moment fighting him. host: your thoughts? guest: the most important thing he said there is a fit the present is serious, serious about working with him. but the president is going to hang out in harry reid's corner of the world and let him get away without putting a budget on the table, not getting serious in the negotiations and really drilling down on something like simpson-bowles, what do you expect the opposition to do? they're not just going to sit there and fall in line just because. both sides now have an opportunity, i believe, to really come to a table with a serious plan and the let's have that fight. let's have that debate about the policy,
in 1978 passed building standards under then governor brown who was known partially for this in the doons burry as governor moonbeam but he got it passed. so every building in california had energy standards and it's made california very efficient. these are the kinds of things -- i said portman and sheheen have been compromising. my view, katrina -- sorry -- sandy gave some impetus to dealing with climate change. and i said in new york we're going to pay for climate change one way or another. we can pay for it after each natural disaster. we in new york have had 50 -- sorry -- we have had 300 or -- sorry. phrasing it wrong. we have had in the last three or four years we have had once in a hundred year disasters with irene, with sandy. and so, you know, i think it will give some impetus to deal with climate change, but even if we can't reach compromise on that, there's lots of things in energy that we can reach compromise on and that will be on the agenda. and the fourth thing i'd put on the agenda i talked about earlier in reference to your question, dave. maybe we can get some real fina
legislature, willie brown gender -- gerrymandered us with democrats controlling. are broken overspent and overtaxed. our senators are not helping us. think i actually don't am being that selected. lyndon johnson on the civil rights act, had great support from the northern democrats and the western democrats. was able to overcome the southern democrats opposition with the help of the republican party. i said that about everett dirksen so i am not really being that selected. i do think my book touches a bark -- upon the origins of the problems we have today, the toxic politics of america started in the late 1970's. one of the problems, very frankly, was the opposite -- was proposition 13 in 1978, the tax revolt that rolled in from california. i think the first basic no-tax pledge, the revolt of 1978, has been greatly responsible for california's decline. host: in the incoming term in the senate, there will be a record number of women, 20 women in all, serving in the senate. your book focuses primarily on men. do you see a shift in the operations or the decorum in the senate with so many
example, your represented by qr ran aground, but karan brown does not point to be on elected by a republican because there's no way a republican can win in that district. and i think she is a wonderful member of congress. but the only way to the caller's point is that you have a competitive election where people actually have to stand up and say, this is what i am going to do and then there will be held accountable if they do not to do it because there will be defeated in the general election host: dakota from oregon. caller: i am a sophomore college student. i have been wanting to get into politics but i feel like i cannot do that because of the ever-growing attention on student loans. and it is becoming ever more clear to me that if things are not done a, i may have to drop out of college because i cannot afford, with one small income such as mind to pay it back. i am wanting to ask you, do you think that during this lame duck session that he would be willing to work with my congressman, to try to find a way to make it more affordable for college students to not feel scared
